Hi there

Now I'm not sure what you are looking for...but a layer set to darken and sampling adjacent color and building with a low opacity brush will darken the lighter skin.

Maybe i am not understanding what you need.

i simply sampled nearby areas and painted the lighter places with a soft brush set to color mode. The painting is done on a new, transparent layer.

Is this what you had in mind?

I'll post my try later on tomorrow, have to go to the hospital tom. morning for a checkup bright and early. Tryout the curves method and see how you like it, ive used it for sunburn victims a bunch! sometimes the edges of your mask will be too bright or dark so you might need to duplicate and clone away the junk depending on the image.

Re: One for the pro retouchers...yes you shelby & co

Hi risenshine,

glad to be on the right track...

In pictures like yours, evenness of skin tones is usually my first aim... The rest, is a matter of personal taste (colour, lighter, darker, smoother, sharper etc.).

Usually, I tackle uneven skin tones as a simple 'colour problem'..meaning... too red, yellow, magenta or too dark spots in some of the colours.

My favourite Tool for minimizing those problems is Selective Colors which, IMO, gives the greatest control for correcting each colour individually.

That's what I used with your picture.

1) Created a Selective Colors Adjustment Layer.

The values I used here (I tweaked Reds and Yellows only) (Attachment 1)
The immediate result after...(Attachment 2)..good already, but I could still see the tan lines...

2) Created a new blank Layer set to Lighten and, sampling from surrounding skin ares, I used a fuzzy brush (Opacity 20-40%)to paint over the darker lines. If necessary, you can add a bit of noise to the corrected areas and 'play' with the 'lighten' Layer's Opacity.

For skin smoothing I used Neat Image. (free noise removing software that can be downloaded here)

Hope this helps.

P.S. The values I used in the Selective Colors Adjustment Layer are for the size and resolution of the image I worked on ... you might have to adjust those values ...

Re: One for the pro retouchers...yes you shelby & co

I have a good excuse, been away getting married and on honeymoon

once again dodge and burn on a 50% grey softlight layer

To get rid of the mottled look zoom out to 100% or even 70% and lighten those dark lines. You dont always need to be zoomed right in.
